Great films advokat - Being John, Wall-e (right there with you), O Brother .
O Brother gets a special consideration for having such a big impact in the music world, bringing Americana into the mainstream. And of course we will tip our hats to T-Bone.

edit- Zelary takes place in and around Prague and Upper Silesia. It's worth a peel regardless.

Too funny you posted that clip as I'm working on trying to bring Iva Bittova to the Henry Miller Library in the not so distant future. http://www.bittova.com/

Seen her many, many times and worked at her label in Prague - it's a small country. She's living in NY these days.

Thanks Micah, you're a good human being, and from what i've read, your posts are relevant and intelligent.

Perhaps on Monday one more Pre-1950 Top Ten for ol William Tell and the geriatrics crowd. Just kidding, but Bill sometimes eludes to his perception that the Bus Stopped Circa 1969 ish?

I don't think WT and rob will be alone if you do a final thread. Why limit it to talkies ? How about 1905 - 1953. Mary Pickford would be pissed if you didn't included her.

On my mind because of these threads,
